Oh good. I'd hate to see it go. It's a good show with great talent. Love the sister and mother.

They showed it a couple of weeks later. Good possibility they will show it the week before the season premiere.

Soooo, they shelved Molly's pregnancy? That was the big reveal at the end of last season (the tornado ep) and the premier had her drinking and Mike saying "If we never have a baby it will be okay..."

Huh?

I was really annoyed they re-did the opening sequence.
Certain sit-coms that is part of their charm - the new upbeat version of the theme song is dumb.

She was pregnant? I guess I don't remember that at all.

But this is the New Mike & Molly. You're probably thinking of the theme song for the old Mike & Molly.

They certainty had to get rid of the weight loss thing, he is 4 times bigger than first season she is 7 or more. His mom had the only funny lines including I'll clear space on shelf after hearing she will write book.

I stopped watching when I realized it was unlikely to progress further than a weekly fat joke show!

I'm sure I only remember because I just finished watching a few days ago. Everyone was down in the basement during the tornado and I can't remember how it came up but she announced that she was pregnant or was going to have a baby.

Really? It is not that at all. Them being fat is only part of their story. They don't ignore it but they don't center on it either. Just like real life.

Hmm. I do not remember that nor can I find it on the interwebs.

I did find that they had a version in Canada that had her announce her pregnancy but they cut it for the US version. Did you watch it on line?

I agree that this ep was decidedly unfunny. First episode for months, the start of a new season, and this is what they air. I don't get it. Do you think that those in charge really patted themselves on the back, saying "Now this is the way to start a new year!"

I was disappointed. And I also agree that the M&M both have seemed to ballooned over the hiatus. They both look enormous and we all know that She has been working a lot so...

I still haven't seen the tornado episode, but didn't she say she lost the baby in this one?

I read somewhere that they got a new showrunner.

CBS didn't have a lot of confidence, as they originally had it as a mid season replacement, only had to bump it up to fill the hole left by cancelled We are Men.

I was so annoyed by that! I was so happy for them when I saw that episode.

It was a torrent so I'm not sure where it originated.

I know for a fact that it aired, OTA, cause we thought the same thing.

I don't like the new direction.

Yep. I read an article the other day that talked about how they decided to take advantage of Melissa McCarthy's popularity and make the show more focused on Molly. The reason the season opener seemed so strange is because they completely revamped her character. It's a shame. I can't recall one time where the network messed with a show and actually made it better.

The placard at the end of the show specified that they were revamping it and they hoped you liked the new direction.

Put me in the camp of "not so far". I really dislike the sudden change in Molly and throwing away the school. Sure, it'll likely give Melissa McCarthy more to do, but the show seems to already be suffering for it.

I'm treating it like a pilot. Adjustments need to take their hold just like a pilot does.

(I don't watch the show, but am checking out this thread because they were so hyping the NEW Mike and Molly..)

I actually thought maybe they had even renamed the show.. But I looked at the description of the first new episode, and again, as someone who doesn't actually watch the show, it seems like they're changing her job.. which for a sitcom can be a big thing, if the workplace is a major focus of the show.

The new Molly is kind of a bitch. Didn't like her or this episode at all. A shame since I've been with this show since the pilot. Oh well. One less show to follow.
